"...Ford simply didn’t care enough to fire them immediately and stick to its guns."
it is unbelievable that these guys were complaining about being fired for celebrating the death of thousands of Americans at an American company, what is more unbelievable is that they attempted to sue for discrimination.why would a major American automotive manufacturer, keep in its employ four employees who cheered the wholesale murder of nearly 3,000 Americans? The United Automobile Workers or UAW pressured Ford to keep them. But, certainly, this behavior would have been cause for firing under the UAW collective bargaining agreement?
"Last week, Ford Motor Company finally won a suit by a former employee, Arab Muslim Saleem Shariff, who cheered the 9/11 attacks and high-fived fellow Arab Muslim employees on the day of the attacks. Three others–Khalid Ali Alward, Abdul Mohamed, and Saleh Mohamed Omar–also Arab Muslims, participated and did the same thing: they cheered and high-fived the 9/11 attacks.
